- There's a censorship in the scene, Dee Dee eating the basement keys and Jack holding a real grenade in the mouth was cut, cause of CN PH doesn't allow the scenes.
- This is one of very few episodes where Oggy is only a minor character.
- Despite the fact Jack doesn't goes out in smoke, he chases cockroaches without his gas mask.
